SPI 145: How to Become a Contributing Writer on Large Media Sites—From Bread Delivery to Content Delivery with Kimanzi Constable

Ready to hear an amazing story? Because that’s what Kimanzi Constable has brought with him today. I can’t wait for you to hear how this guy went from delivering bread to becoming an author with 82,000 books sold.

Before he got published, Kimanzi worked a job he hated. While working late nights, he listened to podcasts like this one and kept a journal of thoughts and ideas. He got inspired to turn those ideas into an eBook, and he set out to self-publish.

The going wasn’t easy though—like any writer, Kimanzi faced plenty of rejection. Now, he’s a regular contributor to large media sites like The Huffington Post, and he’s here to walk us through just how he did it, and how you can become a regular contributor to larger media sites too.

Maybe you’ve got some expertise you want to share, and you know it’d make for some great content on the right site. Maybe you’ve been uncertain about where to send it or how to make sure it catches a publisher’s eye. Kimanzi’s been through it all, and he’s learned some secrets along the way. His tips will turn you into a smarter writer and give you a better chance of landing your writing on large media sites.

No matter what your topic might be, from entrepreneurship to health food, this episode is packed with smart, actionable advice for you. Enjoy the episode!
